Good salary and shift patterns

Regular shift patterns so it was easy to make plans around them. Always something to do, so was never bored on the job and the salary was good for the job specification.

Horrible place to work
Advanced Team Member (Former Employee) –  Billingham-on-Tees, North Yorkshire4 February 2018
KP snacks Billingham has a culture of bullying and I cannot see it changing.. Hence me leaving for another job. The Managers have no people or management skills and most have been promoted from cleaner roles because they have worked there that long.

Official response from KP Snacks

This is an extremely serious allegation.

As you know, all KP Snacks colleagues can share details of any areas of concern via the confidential reporting line (operated by an independent 3rd party organisation).

Unfortunately, as you have now chosen to leave the business and post an anonymous public review, it will not be possible for us to try and investigate or address the alleged problem.

Avoid like the plaque
Dogs body (Former Employee) –  Ashby-De-La-Zouch6 December 2017
If you have any self respect don’t work here.
Management are bullies sarcastic and make you feel worthless.

No matter what you do for them it’s nevwr enough

You’d be better off working for the Gestapo.

Everyone knows gets to know all your orivrate business as well.

Ok company to work for
Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Slough, Berkshire5 December 2017
Although it is a slow working environment there is scope to develop and learn more but I felt it was at a slow pace.
Company itself does not have many perks and felt it was down-sizing as a whole.

MRP Co-ordinator (Former Employee) –  Hellaby, South Yorkshire28 March 2017
Process and packing of peanuts.

A very nice friendly atmosphere to work in the management want every one to work as one big happy family ( this doesn't always happen)

The hardest part of the job is the Christmas rush orders and having enough staff to cover these emergency orders.

The most enjoyable part is knowing that the customer is satisfied with the product
Pros
Bonus scheme
Cons
Some weekend work
